Judge, Mrs. Ira Kaufman's Daughter,
Sylvia, Writes a Book for Children

"Two Against One," by Sylvia
Kaufman, published this week by
Vantage Press (120 W. 31st, NY1),
is like a literary Horatio Alger tri-
The author is the daughter of
Judge and Mrs. Ira G. Kaufman.
The book is the result of an inspira-
tion that came from the writer's
mother. And the most interesting
fact about the book is that it was
written when Sylvia, now a Univer-
sity of Michigan student, was only
Sylvia's father, the popular Pro-
bate Court Judge and the presi-
dent of the Zionist Organization
of Detroit, had his share in the
glorious rise of a young writer,
by the inspiration he wielded in
his home. The mother, a Detroit
public school auditorium teacher,
may well be considered an influ-
ence behind the scenes.
When Sylvia was 12, she and a
group of friends ,punning, decided
to write a book each. Sylvia's ma-
terialized and was inspired when
her mother took a group of enter-
taainers to a state training school.
In the troupe was a ventriloquist, a
dancer, musicians, a safety officer.
Sylvia was moved by the experi-
ence and her story potrays a hero-
ine the-age of the author who wrote
"Two Against One."
It was the plight of the orphans
Sylvia had seen that moved her in
her writing. and the result is the
portrayal of the character of Con-
Connie is the 13-year-old or-
phan. She leaves the orphanage,
gets into a friendly home of her
aunt, but there is snobbery to
contend with and to overcome.
It is not easy, but Connie man-
ages it. She still has to subdue the
cunning of one of the girls, the
venom of a youngster to be be-
friended. There is a cousin's jeal-
ousy to be overcome. The aunt's
wisdom, the readiness of the hero-
ine to establish good family rela-
tions, assist in a happy ending
which makes Sylvia Kaufman's
